Your child will be responsible for choosing a popular U.S. site for their diorama project.
Below is a list of sites that are available to choose from. I suggest that you “surf the net”
and see what interests you before you commit to your site. Students need to have their
site chosen by the selection date. Please check with me if you are interested in a site that
is not listed.

Definition of a diorama:
a scenic representation in which sculptured figures and lifelike details are displayed
usually in miniature blending with a painted background. (you may color the background
with crayon or marker)

Suggested sites:
Yellowstone National Park
Golden Gate Bridge
Rocky Mountain National Park
Grand Canyon
Mount Rushmore
Redwood Forest
Pearl Harbor
Ellis Island
Colonial Williamsburg
The Alamo
Niagara Falls
Washington Monument

Diorama Requirements:
Shoebox size diorama
Representation of your site using your imagination and items you can find or borrow (not
purchase!) Pay attention to details!
Neatness counts, however this is not an art assignment
Report form filled out and glued to the back of your diorama. This will be what you
present on the presentation date. You will also answer 1-2 questions about your site so
know your stuff!
